Women of the Revolution

They kept businesses solvent and farms functioning while their men were away. Most of their contributions are unknown because so many women didn’t speak of their service. Some even raised up the musket. There are 27 women included in The Last Muster series. I mention three in this podcast ...a recognized patriot, a woman who chose sides and one who married a veteran.Perhaps you can help me find more.
